Town’s budget shifts to cover public safety

By: Staff report

DOBBINS HEIGHTS — The proposed budget for the fiscal year 2018-19 has been slightly altered to be consistent with the most recent public safety contract between Dobbins Heights and the city of Hamlet.

Mayor Antonio Blue said that this year’s public safety budget is actually $30,000 instead of $28,000, and $2,000 from the administration budget was moved over to public safety to cover the cost.

“This won’t hurt anything in administration,” Blue said, because the money was only taken out of the advertisement budget.

The administration budget is now $163,129.36 as opposed to $165,129.36. The total budget for the town was not affected by this change.

The town council will vote on the budget at its next meeting on Thursday, June 14.
